Overcoming Anxiety: Reassuring Ways to Break Free from Stress and Worry and Lead a Calmer Life
Overcoming Anxiety: Reassuring Ways to Break Free from Stress and Worry and Lead a Calmer Life
by Gill Hasson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.68

3.0 out of 5 stars Anxiety guide for the non-anxious, 10 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A reasonable enough read though it seems to be a book about anxiety aimed at those not experiencing anxiety but who maybe interested in understanding the mechanisms of it. The initial description of anxiety is a little overblown and constitutes nearly a third of the book. The rest of it is a self help guide format to 'worrying' without really exploring anxiety in its clinical definition.
The chapters are summed up well and the general content is fine as well it's just not a book I would particularly recommend for people actually experiencing anxiety, rather a book that offers generally accepted and well touted advice on positive thinking and self improvement.


Wolf Creek 2 [DVD]
Wolf Creek 2 [DVD]
Dvd ~ John Jarrett
Price: £4.95

2.0 out of 5 stars Starts well at least., 6 Feb. 2016
This review is from: Wolf Creek 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Having seen the original Wolf Creek and viewed it as somewhat of a classic of its genre I found this sequel to be desperately disappointing. In Wolf Creek the protagonist, Mick Taylor, had a certain roguish charm, at least up until we discovered he was a sadistic serial killer. We already know what's coming with Mick this time round so the faux charm and the lulling his prey in has been dispensed with (except for a half hearted attempt with a couple of German tourists) and he's instead developed this xenophobic ultra-extremist, tourist hating Aussie persona instead.
The venue has changed and he now has this underground labyrinth type facility. All brooding atmosphere and sense of dread has been lost for the sake of a larger budget. Now we have vehicle chases and explosive collisions. The victims seem far more disposable this time round but the most irritating factor to me is the continued pretence of it being based upon a true story which has lead the film to construct a pointless and stupeyfying ending to explain how details of the events laid out in the film reached the outside world.
This section contains **Spoilers**
The dialogue at the end to summarise events was ludicrous. If an individual turns up obviously traumatised and exhibiting the signs of torture including fingers which have been power tooled off then their story wouldn't be routinely dismissed and they wouldn't randomnly be viewed as a suspect of murdering missing people (people who had never again materialised with no physical evidence of them being murdered) This individual, again according to the dialogue, was 'deported' (laughable) back to the UK and remains 'indefinately' in a psychiatric facility. all concieved no doubt on the back of a cigarette packet down the pub.
It was so dumb to present the whole scenario that such a depraved individual as Mick Taylor would release one of his victims. From the extras it is clear that the makers would like to create a franchise out of this film; no doubt the next installment will have him with the intelligence level of Hannibal Lector with Jigsaw levels of psychological game playing. It's a shame, but after the first film it was difficult to see where another film would go with this character. It's more of the same but not done as well and with dreadful characterisation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Packs a punch, 4 Feb. 2016
A well made pair of boxing gloves. I've been using these for 2-3 weeks now and they're really comfortable to wear and my hands don't cramp up as much as they have done whilst wearing other gloves.
They are well cushioned allowing a hefty punch though I only use these with training, generally on a heavy bag. the Velcro wrist support is well designed and the gloves stay on nice and tight with prolonged use. There is some superficial scuffing appearing but I've found this the case with all leather based gloves. The colour is too garish for me though; that's just a personal preference and they do just look a little unorthodox, something about the shape of them. Recommended though.


Revlon Tempest Power Dryer

5.0 out of 5 stars Small and powerful, 3 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A very nice and very powerful hairdryer. It looks very stylish in its sleek black and red design and the rubberised handle feels great. Just to echo some of the sentiments made here, it is of a slightly smaller than average size but feels considerably heavier than my partners existing several years old larger model and she doesn't believe on that basis that it would be suitable to take with us on our travels. The potential travel aspect is also underlined by it not having any type of cheap bag or sack but it isn't marketed as a travel device anyway it's just its size may give that initial impression.
It comes with a diffuser which is nice if you utilise such a thing and as can be seen from the picture there is a loop at the bottom for hanging.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good grounded home invasion horror., 3 Feb. 2016
This review is from: You're Next [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
I liked it. It's certainly not without its flaws but it also managed to avoid some of the standard increasingly irritating set pieces that countless films of this genre employ. It is your standard 'home invasion' horror. It has a story behind it which weaves itself very well throughout the film and the lead character in particular does well in falling upon her survivalist training to even the odds without getting all ridiculously Rambo like or constructing deadly eviscerating devices out of pieces of string and sticky back tape plastic.
There were a couple of issues. The mother going for a lie down upstairs (sigh) and why in such a huge house nearly everything was centred around the front door and that adjacent window didn't make much sense. However I liked the fact that our gal did the job properly, when she had opportunity to do so. Not the old chestnut of hit them with something then leave their prone body untouched the assumption being that you've probably dispatched them without making really sure.
Things were drawn to a nice conclusion as well. If you can get past the first 20 mins or so which were at times a bit shouty for me (and you should really be giving films a bit more of a chance than that timeline) it becomes a rather more enjoyable watch.


Ultrasport Home Trainer F-Bike Work with Work Station - Folding
Ultrasport Home Trainer F-Bike Work with Work Station - Folding

4.0 out of 5 stars Good as an exercise bike, 27 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Lots of good points. it's very easy to assemble, 15-20 minutes on average; it folds up, is not too heavy and works well as a standard light exercise bike. the work station is a good idea but it would have been much better if this was adjustable so that you could adapt the angle as it is not the best angle for me to read the paper etc on without having to adjust my body position. Also I'd say that this bike is for more gentle exercising or warm ups rather than a heavy duty cycle workout.
To that ends it would possibly have worked better for me as just a standard exercise bike with a couple of hand grips instead of the workstation. However it may depend on your stature so I'm sure the work station would be ideal for certain body heights though if made adjustable it could have been perfectly suitable for all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sound effort, 26 Jan. 2016
This review is from: Absentia [DVD] (DVD)
A very good independent horror. Two sisters together again after a period of time has elapsed, one of the sisters husband went missing seven years prior and is on the cusp of being declared deceased 'in absentia' However this pivotal moment seems to be the instigating force for a number of creepy and sinister incidences which soon link up with a nearby concrete tunnel/underpass and a number of other historical disappearances in the area and across cultures.
It was very well done obviously on a very tight budget. The build up of tension in parts was very effective and it wasn't overly cliche ridden despite utilising familiar set pieces and scenarios. It's a good, interesting story and was very character driven. It gets under your skin a little, perhaps there was a slight over-use of imagery involving the missing husband but it was overall a good entertaining, well written and directed involving tale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional lamp, 26 Jan. 2016
A fantastic all round desk lamp. It looks really modern and stylish even in its closed up-right position. It gives off a number of really great ambient light settings with its lengthy LED lights depending on the hue and light level you want to create.
The two best features I'd say are, first off its flexibility. The main column can be rotated completely arouthe join at its base means it can also be positioned in loads of different angles. To compliment this the light arm section itself can also independently be raised or lowered upon its axis so some quite creative set-ups can be made depending on where you put the lamp. The second big appeal for me is the slight colour change. Not as stark as you might think. A nice subtle blue or sunlight yellow can be achieved with a variety of strengths. I can't praise this enough; I think it's a brilliant lamp. This lamp was provided in exchange for a fair and impartial review.

Price: £18.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Really powerful, 26 Jan. 2016
This small torch packs a serious beam of light within its small frame. I have much larger bulky torches which perform nowhere near as good as this flashlight.
I was quite taken aback when i saw the size of the box when it arrived. This torch takes three AAA batteries (included though they are no brand I've seen before) and has an adjustable focus though I would just use the wide arc beam of light that you achieve by slightly extending the front section as this is a really powerful beam. The torch has a wrist strap attached, handy as this torch is so small and light in weight. It fits easily into the pocket and I'd say is possibly the best torch I've personally ever used in terms of light produced within this price range.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very handy, 26 Jan. 2016
A very good light weight, portable LED lantern. The 360 degree LED light is collapsable into a black plastic outer casing; there's no on-off switch, the light automatically comes on when it is extended and goes out when pushed down into its recess.
The light output is decent, ideal in fact for camping whereby you may require a light source but not too much light and as it is set in a lantern it gives a nice even spread of light rather then a concentrated beam of light.
There are two collapasable handle for ease of carrying though it can equally be carried with one handle or carried like a small flask. It takes 3 AA batteries and would be a useful thing just to have stored in the car boot perhaps as its so small when collapsed and unobtrusive.
